NSW & Vic Lift Bookie Advertising Restrictions
NSW Racing Minister Kevin Greene & Victorian Racing Minister Rob Hulls jointly announced they "will soon lift advertising restrictions that apply to interstate bookmakers & wagering service providers under proposed legislative changes for both states". Hulls noted: "The proposed changes will create an opportunity for bookmakers in both Victoria & NSW to grow their businesses through advertising generally & will also provide new revenue streams for racing clubs in both states through advertising & race sponsorship." Greene added both governments would "move quickly to draft new advertising reforms & wagering service providers would operate under strict guidelines that will include appropriate consumer protections".
